Dulcie..nearly went for that to go wih my esme but has a boy! And Otis! Love both.

Girls - love Clemetine, Ivy second, only one that doesn't place for me is Orietta (sounds like a brand of something to me)

Boys - love Asa most, but actually think that Otis has the best ring with your surname! Zephyr also extremely cool though I can see why it might be marmite, Zeph is so awesome as a nickname smile

Flora or ivy for a girl

Ruis for a boy

Love Flora and Clementine for a girl and think Zephyr is fab for a boy!

I knew this was you smile

How long do you have to change your mind..?

I'm due on the 6th Dec...not long!

I like Ivy and Otis or Caspar.

Love Clementine for a girl - sounds so Christmassy and orange blossom is so beautiful too, as is the gorgeous smell of clemintines.
I think Zeph (Zephyr) for a boy would be cool, also Otis (sounds musical) or Caspar would be seasonal - wasn't he one of the wise men?
Lovely name choices - like how so many go with the season smile
Good luck with everything!

Ruis and Flora

Orietta and Zephyr

Zephyr for a boy definitely. I've just mulled over Otis for a few minutes and I actually really like it too, especially considering your other childrens names.

Clementine for a girl. It was on my list but DP hated it. Dulcie just reminds me of Dulce de Leche - tasty.

I like them all, but do think Clementine with 4 syllables is to much of a contrast to the single syllable of your other kids. I think Ivy goes best.

All the boys are cool, though I would avoid another A initial. Ruis is new on me, but I rather like it. Think Casper has the edge.

Good luck for the big day!

LOVE Ivy and Flora. (Did you know Flora Macdonald was the Jacobite heroine who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape to Skye? Nice Scottish tie in with your other DD's name there!) Think juniper and clementine don't flow with your surname quite so well and feel frilly next to Skye and Arlo.

Otis I think goes best with your other names, like Caspar too. (Scandinavian spelling Kaspar is one I quite like, even if it is a dreaded K!)

cloggal Fri 22-Nov-13 09:09:39

Sorry meant to add Orietta to the frilly list smile. Dulcie is nice, but so hope you go for Ivy or Flora, so gorgeous!

MummyBeerest Fri 22-Nov-13 09:14:18

I LOVE Zephyr. Awesome name.

For girls, a tie between Ivy and Flora. Slight edge to Ivy.

curlew Fri 22-Nov-13 09:22:11

Clemency for a girl perhaps?

I know you've decided on Zephyr- but it does sound like a girl's name to me. Rafferty goes well with your last name and Raff is fab.

Love love love Caspar.

Not so wowed by your girls names, but I do like Ivy smile

Caspar

Clementine

If you could all just agree on one for each gender,that'd be grand. grin

Because I can't.

Ok smile

forced to go Caspar and Flora

(But Ivy is so great!)
